How to remove pimples naturally?

Forgive my frankness: You're a twelve year old male. Acne is a serious, chronic, incurable disease that needs to be managed scientifically. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, phone your personal physician and ask about an appointment for prescription-strength rx. 'natural remedies' work poorly for acne and almost all other serious illnesses ; the sooner you discard superstition, the better. ...Read more

Natural ways to cure pimples?

Get real Rx: Thanks for writing and please forgive my frankness. Someone may have told you that "natural is better". In the case of acne -- as, sadly, for most illnesses -- this is mostly disinformation. If this has guided your thinking and prevented you from seeking scientific treatment for acne (which is very manageable today) & led to your being scarred, i'm sorry & hope you'll reconsider. ...Read more

How to remove acne scar using natural remedies?

How to remove acne scar using natural remedies?

Can't be done: No one, not even a dermatologist, can remove a scar. The dermatologists can make them less conspicuous using lasers, fillers, abrasion or surgery. No "natural" home remedy works. Truth is that no kid should have to have acne scarring in the first place; if a preference for "natural healing" caused you to be scarred as a teen, you'd be right to be angry. But your scars should be treatable if u want. ...Read more

Any natural ways to rid facial pimples?

Acne: Don't wash your face with body soap. Also don't use alcohol or comedogenic products on your face. Try to find an acne wash system like neutrogena pangea organics or something with benzoyl peroxide. Following low sodium diet might help too, since acne-causing bacteria like salt.

Natural ways to get rid of acne scars?

No such thing: I'm sorry, Heather. If you have acne scars because your family didn't allow you to be treated by a scientific physician out of superstitious preference for "natural medicine", you have my deepest sympathy. An evidence-based dermatologist or plastic surgeon can offer you treatment with laser, microsurgery, and/or fillers. Nothing you do alone, or anything you can buy from an herbalist, will help. ...Read more

How to remove freckles naturally?

You can't; don't try: You'll disfigure yourself and be disappointed. Freckles are as natural to you as the color of your hair, or the special things about your body that the special people in your life like as distinctive to you. Less sunlight is less freckles. Pippi longstocking, asked whether she "suffered from freckles" laughed and said, "no, i love them." since you can't remove them, it's your best choice also. ...Read more

What's the best way to remove acne scars using household products?

CAN'T. Don't try!: Scars are permanent and there is no surgeon or surgical, laser, cream, or cosmetic treatment in existence that can eliminate or remove scars completely. Expert plastic surgery can trade bad scars or poor orientation for better ones hidden in lines of expression or along skin lines, but there will still be new scars. Sorry! stay away from any household products--they can burn or scar you further! ...Read more

What are natural ways to get rid of keloid scars?

What are natural ways to get rid of keloid scars?

Not that I know of: Keloids are tough to treat even in the hands of medical experts. Using natural remedies will be even harder. I have seen balms and creams to get rid of moles, warts and other skin lesions. I believe those are some kind of acid, which causes a chemical peel of the lesion. If this were done to a keloid, it would likely make it worse. Be careful. ...Read more

Are there natural ways to get rid of an acne/pimple scar?

Are there natural ways to get rid of an acne/pimple scar?

Manage it: There's no quick fix for a pimple and nothing you can do on your own will touch a scar. Retinoic acid topically is a vitamin A derivative and it's also good for preventing pimples and may help fade post-inflammatoryp pigmentation. I hope that whether or not this meets your criteria for 'natural', you won't ignore what the 21st century has to offer you for Rx of this serious illness or any other. ...Read more
